HistoryEdit

The railway arrived in Nordhausen on 10 July 1866 with the opening of the line to Halle, which was extended on 9 July 1867 to the west to Eichenberg. In 1869 lines to Northeim and to Erfurt were added. In 1897, the narrow gauge Harz Railway was opened to Wernigerode, starting at the Nordhausen Nord station on the north side of the station. In the station forecourt there is a stop on the Nordhausen tramway that connects the station with most districts of the town.

In 1994 the station was electrified. The station is also important for east-west freight and a large freight yard is located east of the station.
